The case of a 4-month-old girl with a rare multilocular congenital pancreatic cyst is presented, along with radiological/pathological correlation and a review of the literature. Congenital cyst of the pancreas is a rare lesion most often seen in infant girls, although it may be demonstrated in utero. Conventional radiographic signs and clinical symptoms primarily reflect mass effects, whereas imaging modalities show the cystic nature of the mass. Although rare, this cyst should be considered in the differential diagnosis of fetal and pediatric cystic abdominal masses.
